Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has continued to show a keen interest in signing Nigerian forward Victor Osimhen from French club, Lille.

Mourinho is looking for more options in attack in a bid to keep Harry Kane fresh and the Nigeria, who can play as a central striker or in the wider roles, could prove an option, according to a report in Jeunes Footeux.

Osimhen has 11 goals in 20 appearances for Lille so far this season.

The 20-year-old Nigeria international scored 20 times in 31 matches while on loan with Belgian club Sporting Charleroi last term.

Mourinho has also signalled the go-ahead for the club to launch January raid for Osimhen’s Lille teammate Boubakary Soumare.
